that former cia director david petraeus will testify before the senate intelligence committee tomorrow. that information is coming to us from kelly o'donnell who spoke to a veteran senator on capitol hill and, of course, it comes as some tough questions are expected today for president obama. he's giving his first news conference since being re-elected. he will meet the press at 1:0 this afternoon and probably should be prepared to answer some tough questions about general petraeus and allen and the fbi investigation as well as libya, not to mention the fiscal cliff and we're learning more about the woman who knew both general, tampa socialite jill kelley. a senior defense official says the e-mails between the two were more than just calling one another sweetheart, they were flirtatious and unprofessional. both of them wrote letters vouching for her sister in a child custody case and she made this phone call claiming she had some sort of diplomatic status which she does not. >> i am an honorary consul-general so i have unveilability so i should -- they should not be going across my pro

petraeus' replacement at the cia mike morell met tuesday. he'll speak with counterparts on the house side today about the scandals, the national security implications, why congress wasn't told soon er and, also, e assume benghazi will come up. joining me now the national investigative correspondent michael isikoff and capitol hill correspondent kelly o'donnell. kelly, let me start with you before i get to mike on the latest on the general scandal itself. congress continues to basically wring their hands over why didn't they know sooner on this front. are they getting any more answers today? >> reporter: well, they expect to get more answers as there is now a kind of greater spirit of providing answers. we've seen the top people from the cia, the acting director who was here yesterday back again today, also the deputy director of the fbi coming to talk to the key members who are on those committees. they would have jurisdiction here, who believe they should have been in the loop at some point. so that's one issue. but a lot of this gets conflated with concerns about what actually happened
, if there was one, was by the cia and questions about the information given to susan rice. i find that they skirt around that. the other issue brought up regarding this meeting that was supposed to take place yesterday or briefing that senator mccain missed because there was a scheduling error. at the same time he was holding a news conference. this adds to the notion that this is about politics, even though he and his staff indicate there was a scheduling error as to why he would miss a briefing on benghazi and instead be holding a news conference. >> you know, i think it is pretty clear that this is politics. if you remember, again, when condoleezza rice was up for confirmation, she did grilled. she only, i think, got confirmed by 85 votes, 15 democrats voted against her. they had legitimate concerns about her in some of the intelligence failures around iraq. but i do think it's going to be difficult if the president decides to nominate susan rice, and we don't know that he will, but it seems that he was certainly coming to her defense in a vigorous way. i don't see necessarily how the republic
was sending harassing e-mails to another woman close to the cia director that prompted the fbi to investigate. also we know that the investigation led to the discovery of e-mails between broadwell and petraeus that indicated the affair. now, that second woman hasn't been identified, and the official we spoke with didn't know the nature of that woman's relationship with the former director. but more details are. going out about the timeline of events and when u.s. officials were notified of the circumstances of this investigation. a senior u.s. intelligence official tells the cnn that the fbi informed the director of national intelligence james clapper about the investigation on tuesday night, election night, just as some polls were beginning to close and director clapper as a friending colleague, fellow officer, and admirer, urged petraeus to step down from his position. we know as well from that intelligence source that director clapper informed the white house on wednesday and then, of course, the president and general petraeus met and that's when, in fact, his resignation was offered to th
, that friday afternoon bombshell. david petraeus resigns at the cia after the fbi uncovers his extramarital affair. pierre thomas is here with the latest. first came upon this several months ago. >> yes, it came to light after a woman in tampa tied to military got a peculiar, harassing e-mail. the woman was so concerned, she contacted the fbi, who, then, according to our sources, traced it back to paula broadwell, who wrote a book about petraeus. as the fbi continued to investigate, they discovered e-mails pointing to a romantic, sexual relationship between the two. early concerns about the e-mails being hacked. but the investigation never turned up evidence of national security being compromised. but what did find was lots of human drama. >> what more do they have to investigate now and why wasn't the white house told until this week? >> the fbi investigation is largely done and the early evidence is that there will not be criminal charges. again, sources say that this deinvolved into a personal matter. petraeus had been confronted in the last couple of weeks, as for the timing of the disc

the cia operation house which people, i guess, didn't know was a cia operation house which is about a mile away. and they were talking and in the days leading up to this attack that maybe it was so unsafe for the ambassador to stay in this con schiewt that maybe they should just move all the operations over. this another piece of information come out in the last 24 hours. brian, each since you have been gotten, i don't even know where to start because there has been a series of other things happening where more and more warnings were sent to the state department and more and more questions, quite frankly. >> brian: what's unbelievable it stops at the white house. when all the questions come up and information broken a lot by catherine herridge and jennifer griffin they get broken and come forward in foreign policy magazine. you expect the white house take this and comment on it. it's delay of game. you get in denials an not say why these people have an agenda. you have pundits saying it's political agenda. for the lawmakers they don't. senator lindsey graham and senator john mccain who spe
a kelly ayotte who talked about originally when miss rice came to capitol hill to meet with her the cia acting director who was with her said it was the fbi who changed the talking points to remove the reference to al qaeda having been the ones behind that attack on our consulate. then later in the day they said they got a call from the acting cia director and miss rice saying that was the wrong information. it wasn't the fbi, it was us, the cia who changed the talking points. there is still a question about who specifically did it. has any light been shed on that? >> they are doing internal review of that and putting together a time line exactly who looked at the talking points and made that change to kind of reveal that information. but really the question is who gave those talking points to ambassador rice, who did direct the entire effort of changing the narrative. in the end i think what this is all about is this president and this administration -- somebody running for reelection didn't want the narrative that we killed bin laden and al qaeda was decimated. because al qaeda isn't

. ambassador cameron munter was very aware of what went on with the cia. if you look at the drone strikes over the past four years, 2010 over 122 joined strikes. the numbers have been dropping since then is the highest number we have had. president obama has authorized six times more joined strikes than george w. bush did in his two terms in office. the numbers reflect 25% from that point in 2012. i think this is a very good thing. maybe because we have a tactic doesn't mean we should employ all the time. the army chief of staff, general gianni. you know, i think that is a good point. if you look at the victims of these strikes and how many civilians that we think -- the civilian casualty rate is in the low digits. pakistan, you know, we enjoy a good political rating down from about 20% and the drones are part of that story. that is a pretty high cost. i think because of the work that people that cameron munter have done, saying that we need to be more discriminatory. we don't need all of these lights. it does not really serve our interests. the cost is really alienating the pakistani populati
